Fresh off an NBA Championship clinched just one week ago, the Miami Heat reportedly traded the No. 27 pick in the first round of the 2012 NBA Draft to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for the No. 45 pick and a future first rounder. The Heat selected Mississippi State's Arnett Moultrie with the 27th pick. Moulrie will be sent to Philly. Marc Spears of Yahoo! first reported the trade:

If everything holds as is, the Heat will now pick at No. 45 (15th in the second round) and hope to add a contributor on a non-guaranteed contract
